If there’s one thing I like, it’s mixing business with pleasure.

It’s why my students always got Blow Pops after taking their state tests. And now, it’s why we were more than happy to combine our Michigan road trip with an in-person podcast interview.

We’ve worked with Alison & Dan of Happy People Hike from just about the beginning of our trip. And we could think of no better interviewees — people who are passionate about traveling, the outdoors, and specifically the national parks, and who have also created a business around that passion — for today’s podcast interview.

We hope you find their words as encouraging and inspiring as we did. It almost makes us want to jet around the country again…
